Professor Tony Avery is looking for GP locums to participate in a national survey aimed at improving GP prescribing.
Professor Tony Avery, OBE, is the National Clinical Director for Prescribing. He is also a GP in Nottingham, and Professor of Primary Health Care at the University of Nottingham. He spoke on prescribing challenges for sessional GPs as part of NASGP’s stream at Guidelines 2023.
Prof Avery is co-leading research with colleagues from the universities of Nottingham and Manchester to find ways of improving these safety alerts.
Part of this research involves doing a simulation exercise with volunteer GPs in TPP SystmOne. This will be done remotely on Microsoft Teams.
During the exercise, participants will be asked to demonstrate how they would carry out prescribing for fictitious patients. It will be recorded, but all participants will be anonymised and will not be identifiable.
The exercise will take about an hour and there will be a token reimbursement of £50 in Amazon, Blackwells or Love2shop vouchers per participant.
